Why not stop with the guessing game that your are playing and give a direct answer?
I for one appreciate direct answers.
But then it's no fun
It is impossible to prove why one's Military is "the best." There are plenty of contradicting reviews regarding different military forces. There is
always a bias no matter where one looks. It is human nature to side with values, even if said human doesn't notice it.
Furthermore, how is one meant to score all the Military Forces to determine the "best" one? What metrics is one going to base said measure on? Size?
Technology? Readiness? Maneuverability? Reliability? There are too many spheres pertaining to the military structures that it is impossible to
determine who has the best military.
For instance, if one were to base the best military on how many troops are ready for direct deployment, one would choose North Korea as they have the
largest available standing army, ready to deploy at any moment.
If one were to base it on technology, perhaps the USA would win. That is unknown considering many countries have their own projects happening.
If one were to base it on reliability, it could be argued that Australia could win, due to the countless time the country has shown heart and has
never given up in the face of failure, most the time resulting in success.
You see, there is no solid basis to base "The best military" on. In the end, there is only opinions. This brings me back to the obvious thread
content. I asked for sources to prove that the US has the best military. Some were supplied, but failed to be objective. The fact is, it is impossible
to find a full blown, objective and credible source used to support the argument. Even if one were to supply said source, there are still too many
factors to base it on.
